It is often that I like the letters written in to your paper. The letters are thought-provoking, and sometimes they are funny. I always look forward to reading them on Monday, or sometimes I read them on Tuesday if on Monday I am too busy.
I understand also that you print the letters that are sent to you and do not usually reject letters. That is a good practice, because it stops discrimination and censoring. If you were to pick and choose everything you want to print, and turn away everything you found distasteful, your readers would not be able to trust that they are getting objective news.
Nevertheless, I am certain you do not have to be printing letters like the one that appeared in your paper last time. Is it maybe true that you did not get enough submissions, so you were forced to print a letter about “urinal etiquette”? It is not everybody that is so interested in the details of men’s urinating habits. Next you will have “stall etiquette”? But that would be disgusting!
I have one more thing to say about it. I do not even think the argument presented in the letter was valid. I for one am always grateful for the urinal walls. They protect my privacy. And I do not think the morals of our society can degrade so easily just because they are not practised. In fact it is my belief that most men still know how to behave themselves.
I certainly do.
